Linen.

He buttons his shirt

to the rhythm of the downpour.

Tormented man and torrent of rain,

last breath that departs

before the embrace of dear death.

The silk that softens,encloses,encases

the rotting of his memories–

broken bones and blackening bruises,

all preserved underneath that cloth

where I once knew

what it meant to know,

to sink so far–awake in the dim caverns of my mind.

He watched me collapse within my sorrow,

foul fortune that still stained my palms

when he to crumbled into eternity,

to be what I could never be,

to be but never be.

The drunken man who I feared,

so poetic in all that he was;

Even in dying, his name, I revered:

Frail linen carried across the wind.

-Eva M.M.
